Small place with a hippie/hipster vibe when you walk in. Service was nice, but he was in a rush to leave (we got there right at 4pm, the closing time on a sunday). Selection was pretty solid; I was impressed because of the stuff we canít get down in Florida, but Iím sure if I was local nothing would blow me away. Pre-filled growlers from a couple breweries is a cool idea, but they arenít the only ones in town doing that. Prices are a little higher than some other places in town, but not too terribly outrageous. Pretty solid bottle shop overall.

Small quaint store, place youíd like to just chill and hang out. Talkative, nice and informative beer guy, gave good advice. Big selection of beers from Belgium and easily accessible stuff in the US. Strong selection of locals, but not as strong as Appalachin Vitner which should be the go to bottle shop when coming through.

Thought Iíd already rated this. Done mail order and in person from these good folks, and they deliver marvelously on both counts. Well stocked, convivial atmosphere, terrific service. Itís hard not to be won over by some of the excellent local one-offs and so forth, but they really have a deep bench as well. Didnít see the need to go anywhere else and will look forward to the next visit.

Small shop focused on craft and import specialty beers. Most bottle conditioned Belgian beer was at room temperature and out in the light which is a big no-no. For some local things, new releases, the bottles and cans are probably no worse off than anywhere else. The unpasteurized living beer I do not trust is in good shape. Only one small cooler to choose from, and checking dates I saw some expired products and many that were approaching it. Nothing to show your customers how much you care like leaving out dusty, expired bottles.

Great little beer store in downtown Asheville. Pretty much the "go to" destination for Craft beer in a city full of craft beer. The downside of this is they tend to sell out of the popular stuff first. I was able to pick up bottles of Event Horizon, Sexual Chocolate and Greenman Snozzberry at other lesser known stores within a couple blocks away that were sold out at Bruisiní Ales. Still, a great place to check out and tons of great bottles. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

A great little shop dedicated to craft beer. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, prices are a bit on the high side. I would happily support anywhere that is just about craft beer as this place is.

Great selection...great people. Imagine my delight whe traveling from NJ to FL on the Christmas holidays I stopped in here and found a case of Lagunitas Sucks just sitting on the floor waiting for me to buy it a full 3 weeks before it reached NJ! That made for a great trip to Key West! The staff helped me pick out a variety of bomber bottles representing WNC regional IPAís.. Given my car was parked too far away to carry...and there were no spots near the store...they guys there held everything aside for me and I picked it up at days end on my way out of town. This is clearly the place to go when in Asheville.

Small shop, no parking, high prices, old beer. Really cool staff, as in WAY to cool. Appalachian Vintner is worlds better.

Excellent beer store in downtown Asheville. Stop here on a visit from Georgia. Small store, but selection was extensive. Service was excellent. The staff was able to tell me which beers were available in North Carolina and not Georgia. And I received some recommendations. I also visited Appalachian Vintner on the same afternoon; The service at Bruisiní Ales was much better and prices were cheaper. Great place; highly recommend.

These guys are great! Had a beer leak in one of my deliveries and they are going to replace it no questions asked. Could not ask for better customer service. They really are friendly people. Highly recommend this place to everyone!!

New to the area. Had hi hopes. Ok selection big on Belgian small store. A tad pricey. most everything is higher priced than all other stores in Asheville Shit in NC. Some staff was helpful. The other it was like I was bothering him by being in the store. But you can grab anything as a single which is great.
